Demon king Ravana

Photos from Hindu festivals in India, including Navaratri, Dussehra and Durga Puja, where every year during the lunar month of Ashwin or Kartik (September-October), Hindus observe ten days of ceremonies, rituals, fasts and feasts in honor of the supreme mother goddess, and are concluded with Dusehra, a festival to celebrate the triumph of good over evil.

God Vishnu Needs To Take the Human Form to Defeat the Invincible Yeaksa Lord Ravana.

Rama is the son of King Daśaratha, but he is also an incarnation of the god Vishnu, born in human form to do battle with the demon lord Ravana. Ravana had obtained divine protection against other demons, and even against the gods - but because he scorned the world of animals and men, he had not asked for protection from them.

Demon Ravana is still at least compassionate and protector of his own Yeaksa people.
